    "The staff and faculty at this school are apathetic and they simply do not care. They will do whatever takes the most minimal effort and they will throw everything off on the parents (or someone else). These are mostly low income needy kids who would thrive if someone just cared about them and took a little extra effort to help them along. These teachers give all teachers a bad name. There are very few who care at all. Hopefully, the new Principal can change that. Until then, your student will have a rough time here unless you are very very active and if you are like most parents in this area, you probably don't have the time to be so."

    "I am pulling my son out of this school and am putting him in private. My son tells me everyday about the things he experiences here and it amazes me. I feel sorry for the students that HAVE to stay that aren't a part of the problem. There are so many problem students attending this school and the "good" students are having to endure the results of the "bad" students problem "homelives". It is really sad. I went up to the school and spoke with the administration and even they told me they have never seen a class like this EVER in all the years they have been teaching. It is bad....really bad. My son has come home two times within the past two weeks crying. I'm OVER THIS SCHOOL!"

    "Thank God my son was only stuck there for one year ('08-'09). There was horrendoulsly little communication from admin to staff, less from staff to students and none from staff to parents. The band program was draconian (wanted my son to go to a clinic at UT on a Sat instead of taking his only chance to visit a relative whom he hadn't seen in 3 years and dinged his grade when I refused to permit him to go). A miserable experience for both my son and his teacher mom. Done public and private--Worst Experience EVER!"
